I've never been, but I'm guessing you are referring to:

Zimman's Inc

Lynn, MA 01901

(781) 598-9432

Come and meet some of your favorite craftsters, start/finish your holiday shopping, check out the Boston Derby Dames and generally have a great time.

3  UNITED STATES / Massachusetts / Any knitting/crafting groups in Cambridge? on: October 22, 2006 07:37:34 PM
Hi All.

I've finally moved back home to MA.  I'm hoping to find a knitting/crafting group in Cambridge.  I work in east Cambridge and live in mid-Cambridge.

4  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Re: Minneapolis Community Ed Classes... on: January 03, 2006 01:15:58 PM
I took a stained glass class from Dragon Art Glass (5345 Lyndale Ave South - (612) 823-7434
...they don't have a website...maybe I'll offer to make one in exchange for some more supplies or classes...).  My husband gave me the class as a Christmas present, so I think it must have started in mid-January of last year.  I'm guessing the class schedule will be similar this year.

I really enjoyed the class - there were only 4 people in it and the instructor was a riot.  I can't remember how much it cost.  But I remember thinking it was a really good value once I realized how small the class was and how much attention we got.  I even dropped into the shop a couple of times on the weekend to use the grinders and ask for help.  My husband and I took the class together, so we were able to share most supplies.

I've also had some friends take community ed stained glass classes.  As far as I know, their experiences were all quite good.

6  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / Re: I know this sounds crazy but.... on: October 05, 2005 07:31:15 AM
My brother used to work for a quirkly media company that had a musuem of dirt (and a fab website to display it).  I just tried to google it, but couldn't find it.  It looks like the firm may have been taken over by a larger, not so quirkly company.


7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Projects from "Loop-d-Loop" on: September 29, 2005 11:43:45 AM
Re one should tank:

One problem though- what to wear underneath? I think I'm going to have to get some pasties before I wear this outside my apartment!

I think I'd go with a simple tube top instead.  I have a nude colored tube top I wear all the time when I want a little more coverage, but no straps.

I'm considering making it with the plan of wearing it under a jacket this fall/winter.  I think the asymetric neckline (maybe in something in a silver) would make a black jacket more interesting.  What do you think?
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: LOST cake...John Locke -ness monster! on: September 28, 2005 08:08:55 AM
I showed the cake to some friends. 

My husband said, 'It looks more like E.T., all it needs is a glowing finger'

Our friend Andy said, 'Given the way the series is going, I wouldn't be surprised if John Locke acquired a glowing finger this season'

Maybe you are on to something...
9  UNITED STATES / Minnesota / Minneapolis Community Ed Classes... on: September 27, 2005 02:44:48 PM
I'm thinking of signing up for a couple of crafty community ed classes (probably crochet and sewing).


Several classes are available at multiple locations, with different instructors.  Does anyone have recommendations about where/with whom to taking sewing or basic crochet?

I think it is awesome.  There are some crazy things you can do with color flow and such to reproduce designs (print on paper, put wax paper of the paper, outline design with royal icing, fill with thinned out royal icing...aka color flow), but you end up with a giant piece of crazy sugar.

I like your impressionistic take on it more.
